I’m an English teacher and a bibliovore. I’m fairly ambidextrous, except when it comes to writing and using chopsticks. I was born in the Year of the Metal Monkey, which seems like it should involve more headbanging than it does. I’m a low-level synesthete with usually-manageable sensory defensiveness. My best friend is my husband, which is usually dreadfully convenient unless I want to complain about my best friend or my husband. I’m a classically-trained and embarrassingly-rusted pianist, a saxophone-playing marching band enthusiast, and a mostly self-taught percussionist. I am Bronco Nation. My vices include chai, cute but comfortable shoes, used books, Samoas, and cotton afghans. I think I’m writing a novel. I wish I could sing, draw, and hold my own against Chuck Norris. My favorite dinosaur is the stegosaurus.
